ode to forms of transportation

this week the graves did many things. it was our spring break.

we started the week picking up our new van. it is very nice, drives well, the stereo works and has no duck-tape(yet). we were very excited.

next adam participated in his pinewood derby. we headed to the church and hoped the glue would dry quickly. adam and scott had a good time making their car and they did a good job. adam's a-wing (modeled after the star wars edition) didn't lose any races...until it started to fall apart. he was in first place until the final tournament--things went downhill (ha, ha) from there. but he had a great time. only 11 more derby cars for scott to go!

we also went to the park and took the boys' bikes. adam kinda knows how to ride a bike, but we decided to make sure. the other boys took advantage of the sun and climbed to their hearts' content.

and finally we took a little trip to southwest colorado to a small town called hotchkiss. we played and talked and ate and slept and tried to sleep. there were trains everywhere! the area is beautiful, the people friendly and we had a good time but were very glad to come home.

and now it's back to school...see you next sunday.
